We had seven people for an adult birthday party. The management and staff went out of their way to make us feel safe and comfortable during uncertain times.

Service, ambiance, and experience were exceptional. The food was fantastic and we left extremely satisfied. Only suggestion is to change the seasoning to the chicken-the herb flavor clashed with the other flavors.

It was great food. The only thing that would have been a little better is if we had more water given to us. There’s so much food and everything tastes sooooo great. Just spent a lot of the time thirsty and wondering where our server was to get refills on our H2O.

We reserve the Melting Pot for the extra special events. The food, the service, and the ambiance are top notch. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it!

I surprised my wife for the “Thursdate” night they have going on right now. It was beautiful, romantic and fun. The private tables behind the curtains, rose petals on the table and candle lit ambience makes everything even more special. This was a very much needed night, that was special and very memorable!

The food and drink is way over priced for what you get. $192 dinner for 2 is a bit much for Peoria Arizona. I won’t be back. I eat out for value and delicious food.

Belated Mother’s Day due to the pandemic but our food server didn’t do anything special for us. No reason to even ask us what the occasion is because it means nothing. We spent 190-ish on three people so it was a special occasion to us. Oh well! Food was very good anyway. Service was sub-standard. Nothing special, disappointing. About like a Denny’s or IHOP. Had to ask for refills, had to ask for napkins, dropped my fondue fork but he never came back before the end so I just used two. Three adults and we got maybe a tablespoon of condiments. At 30 a person we should of each received a set. I live in California and the one in La Jolla where we go in light years about this place. Maybe you could call them and see how they train their food servers so your employees can at least catch up to Your counterparts. So why do you ask if it is a special occasion?

Our seats were near the doorway, the walls were scratched and dirty. 25% tip was automatically added to our bill, which made my wife's poorly mixed Mai Tai around $17.00, my and my daughter's watermelon non-alcoholic drinks became nearly $10.00 each. I only had the option to lower the tip, which is ridiculous. 25% tip? Automatic? Consider, there is no chief nor cook; you cook your own meal! Never again will I enter this restaurant nor will I ever recommend it to anyone. I felt like I was a method to merely obtain extra money and not a true guest. This is my first negative review. I hope it is the last. Avoid this restaurant unless you don't mind experiencing what happened to us.

My wife and I went to Melting Pot tonight to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. The staff were wonderful and attentive. Had an issue at the bar when we first got there and were going to get some drinks before dining. The bartender showed up after a few minutes briefly said he’d be right back and the. Didn’t return until our table was ready. The manager ended up comping a portion of our bill in apology and made sure we got the happy hour specials we wanted.

Over all very good experience. If it weren’t for the overall cost being high, it would be a regular place my wife and I would go for date nights. As is, it is nice for special occasions.

*Note: If you get a private booth, it is nice to have the curtains drawn, but can get hot with the fondue pot heating up.

Everything was great and I have eaten there before so maybe I just did not pay attention in the past but price just seems too much for what you get. It is unigue and great for conversation over dinner but to many $$$$.
